Hi, I have been an 02 pay monthly customer for many years and am coming to the end of my current contract- I plan to upgrade to an iPhone 5 with my next contract but am aware 02's 4G network take longer as EE has the jump on that one. However I have also read that the current iPhone 5's will not work on 02's 4G network once it is rolled out. So not sure which option is best now- change to EE and get an new iphone 5 that will work once my area gets 4G coverage or wait and see when 02 will get 4G coverage to my area and also when a new iphone 5s is released that will be supported on 02's 4G network.
Solved! Go to Solution.

EE have an awful lot going against them at the moment in terms of 4G its really not worth the hassle in my opinion yet.

Plus our friends across the pond report some are turning off Lte due to battery drain.
Nice to have faster Internet but its of no use if the unit dies due to no juice !

I moved from EE to O2, lots of reasons, they are plugging EE and 4G extensilvley and charging more for it, and unless you live smack bang in the middle of a major city you wont get 4G. By the time the coverage is increased the other networks will have caught up. An i really have no need for such speeds, after all theres only so much room on the motorway no matter how quick you drive!
